Dedicated to well being
I started believing in plants at an early age. I remember being injured or sick and my mother going into the backyard garden, picking some type of plant that I’d end up drinking or wearing. All I knew is that they made me feel better.
As I got older, and moved on my own, these were the habits I bought with me. My method was always folk, because that is the way I was taught. Since, graduating from Pacific Rim College and receiving a diploma in Phytotherapy (Western Herbalism), I learned how to correctly make medicine in every form.
During a consultation, we will discuss your mind, body and spirit to determine what is causing your concern and what can be done to help you achieve your goals. We will learn about your diet and lifestyle, and address any concerns regarding your nervous system.

My tinctures are typically made using a 1:1 ratio because I am a big believer of drop (or spirit) dosing. It simply means taking a fraction of what a therapeutic dose would be. Naturally, there are cases that require therapeutic dosing and I correctly formulate for that purpose as well.
I take into account if you need a tincture, capsule, tea, salve, oil, flower essence, or even incense. All are custom-made to order . I also take into account if you just need to sit and talk. Sometimes people just want to be heard and express their feelings. There is always tissue and tea at my consultations.

Is herbal treatment right for me?
My focus is working with clients who have mental health issues. This includes mood, anxiety, personality, psychotic, eating, trauma-related or substance abuse disorders. My past job-related duties entailed extensive experience working within these areas. I bring this knowledge to the table and have developed the patience assisting others along their journey.
My focus may be near and dear to me, but I do help with every day issues that come about, so don’t feel boxed in to the above.
My consultations can be made by phone or Skype, or by house call to the Victoria and Saanich areas. It is important for me to see the environment my client is living in to better serve them.
